If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

With six years of work experience, four years of college education, and tutoring experience on WyzAnt since August of 2010, I feel that I am adequately prepared to tutor in a variety of subjects. I attended a top-ranked engineering school, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, and received my B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering and Biochemistry/Molecular Biology in 2007 with magna cum laude honors. I was later hired as a process engineer at OMNOVA Solutions, Inc., which manufactures specialty chemicals. During my tenure at OMNOVA, I used statistical analysis every day to troubleshoot and improve processes. I also earned my LEAN SixSigma GreenBelt certification with a project that reduced natural gas consumption in the facility that resulted in a cost savings of over $300K annually.

I have experience in tutoring all math subjects (including SAT math) as well as chemistry. I have specific tutoring experience in algebra, precalculus, geometry, trigonometry, SAT math, ACT math, GRE math, Microsoft Excel, calculus, chemistry, and statistics (including business statistics). A few specific examples of success stories: 1. A GRE student improved her math score by 150 points, and 2. an algebra student increased his grade from a D to an A in the class. I have taken all levels of math and have the capability to tutor any math subject.

During my high school years, I had experience tutoring in basic math as well. Given my current background, I feel confident that I could provide tutoring services for college and high school math, chemistry, and biology as well. My strongest areas are math and chemistry.

I will provide a teaching style that best suits your needs and will travel to tutor you with no extra cost for travel. We can meet at any convenient location. I am very patient and am willing to work with you as long as possible in order to achieve any goal that you may set for yourself. I believe anything is attainable if you have the will to succeed and endurance to learn, so please contact me if you are interested in fulfilling your potential!

Best of luck,
Ryan

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring students through WyzAnt since the fall of 2010. While most students I've tutored using WyzAnt are adult or high school students, I also have experience outside of WyzAnt with tutoring students in elementary school. Since January 2012, I've been tutoring 3rd and 4th grade students and have helped them prepare for standardized tests in addition to daily homework assignments in math, science, reading, and social studies. My primary area of expertise is math and science, but I am able to help in other subject areas at the K-6th grade levels.

This Tutor Knows His Stuff! — I was extremely pleased with working with Ryan. I came to him because I was struggling with Chemistry. Immediately I experienced drastic improvements in my studies and was very encouraged, so I continued working with Ryan. Very rapidly from the first session on, I went from having a vague understanding, to being able to really grasp the concepts we were learning in class. He was extremely patient ...
